Why does the senate seem to have more power than the house when it comes to climate change?

    The House and the Senate have equal power, but it requires the approval of both to pass a bill. The House tends to represent the views of individual sections of population, making them more the “voice of the people.” The Senate acts on the basis of a state of a whole; when voting they take into account how a bill will affect their state. Its not that the Senate has more power when it comes to a climate bill; its that the Senate considers a bill more in depth than the House. This was intended by the founding fathers in order to create a system of power checks and balances.
